When you arrive in Dunany from Lachute, your eyes are directed to St. Paul’s Church. Just opposite lies Dr. Louis Lapierre’s Dunany residence.
He was an internist and a nephrologist (kidney specialist) . For more than a decade he headed the department of medicine at l’Hôpital Notre-Dame de Montréal, now le Centre hopitalier universitraire de Montréal (CHUM). He also taught medicine at l’Université de Montréal.
He arrived in Dunany in 1972 when he bought the 85 acre property from Grattan Thompson who had built a farm there. His grand daughter Lyn Bartram wrote to me a couple of summers ago wanting to know if there was still a farm there!
This is a picture of Dr Lapierre’s property as seen from the lake that I took for Lyn.
Many of us knew him well and enjoyed his company. Witness this first SPANK departure (2009) from his property then lead by Revilla Sauvé.
This is our final salute to you, Louis Lapierre our friend.
Funeral services will be held on December 1 at Complexe Funéraire Mont-Royal, 1297 chemin de la Forêt in Outremont.
